Enjoy An Authentic Chippy Tea With Young's

Young's Chip Shop Range

Ruth Langsford, Young's development chef Serge Nollent and a group of UK food bloggers have teamed up this summer to showcase the versatility and authenticity of the Young's Chip Shop range, just in time for the busy school holidays. We'll show you just how easy it is to create a fish and chip supper at home, not only saving you money but allowing you to make healthier choices for you and your family.

Young's Cod Fillets

Young's Chip Shop Cod Fillets have a unique crisp, bubbly batter allowing you to recreate the authentic taste of the chippy in your own kitchen. The cod fillets are made from 100% responsibly sourced white flaky cod and at only 243 calories per fillet are a lot healthier than their takeaway counterparts.


Young’s traces its roots back to 1805, when it was founded by Elizabeth Young and her family who were watermen and fishermen on the Thames at Greenwich. The company has been in continuous growth since that time and undergone a number of changes of ownership, although the Young’s family remained involved until the late 1980s.

Young’s started as a whitebait business, then later became famous for its potted shrimp, sold in distinctive blue pottery jars. It was responsible for a number of notable seafood firsts, including the invention of scampi in 1946 and the marketing of the very first frozen prawns.

Today, Young’s continues to build on its heritage and experience – and as the UK’s biggest specialist seafood brand leading the market with exciting new ideas to help people enjoy fish twice a week.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake: An Alternative Christmas Cake

Every year I make a Christmas cake and every year I'm the one that ends up eating the thing. So in a concerted effort to maintain my waistline, this year, instead of a traditional Christmas cake I'll be making an alternative Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake to enjoy. After all, who can resist the quintessentially festive chocolate orange combo?

The beauty of a biscuit cake is that it can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and left in the fridge until you want to serve it (or a cold garage if the fridge is bursting at the seams!). All you need is a dollop of clotted cream and you're sorted. If this is being made for an entirely adult audience I would use all dark chocolate in the topping.

TIPS FOR MAKING A FESTIVE BISCUIT CAKEAdd some fudge pieces or nuts if that's what your family likesDecorate with festive sprinklesIf you prefer make in a large square baking tin and cut into slices
